How to generate an SH02

Please note: Capdesk does not submit the SH02 to Companies House. You can generate the form, verify, update and file it online to Companies House yourself.

The SH02 (notice of a subdivision or consolidation of shares) is a Companies House filing legally required to be filed following a subdivision or consolidation of shares. 

We fill out a Companies House template with all your relevant sub-division / consolidations recorded on Capdesk.

You can generate this report by going to the “Companies House” tab -> green button “Export” -> “SH02”.


This will bring you to a window where you can enter the Date of Resolution. If your company has not gone live, please ensure the Include drafts checkbox is ticked, or the report will be blank.

Date of Resolution

The SH02 report will be emailed to you and you can download, update if necessary and then submit to Companies House yourself. 

Once submitted to Companies House, you can record it on Capdesk as filed to keep a record of the date (found in the “FILED” column) in which you submitted it. You can do this by clicking on the action button (far right button with the 3 dots) -> File -> enter date of filing -> Mark as Filed.
